Investigating the Link Between Research Data and Impact
The first report was based on the UK experience . It found professionals, government/policymakers and industry/business members were the most common types of non-academic beneficiaries of research data.
The second report on the Australian experience also identified the flow-on impact of research data to the public and wider non-academic stakeholders.
The reports underlined the ‘uniqueness’ of data in realising impact. Universities identified numerous impact pathways that involved research data and, in most cases, without that data the impacts would not have been possible.
Both reports were commissioned by the ARDC and carried out by the Institute for Methods Innovation – a research charity registered in the United States and the United Kingdom.
